About William F. Getman, MD

  • Dr. Getman is a native of upstate New York.

I consider myself very fortunate to be a pediatrician. Taking care of children is a tremendous responsibility and hard work but I can think of no other career that is more rewarding and enjoyable.

OVERALL PROVIDER RATING

Rating based on the helpfulness of the doctor's nurse and/or medical assistant (MA)

4.8out of 5
  • November 10, 2022

    We love Dr. Getman - he’s honest, will shoot you straight - always in a kind way.

  • November 8, 2022

    We were in the office after the nurse came, for 42 minutes before the dr came. That seems a bit excessive.

  • November 4, 2022

    Dr. Getman is always kind, thoughtful and compassionate!

  • November 3, 2022

    Waited 45 minutes to be let into back, with 8 children roomed before being called back. Disincentive for arriving early or even on time.

  • November 2, 2022

    Dr.Getman is wonderful!!!!!!

  • November 2, 2022

    Always helpful and reassuring!
